American Progress

Historical United States Census Browser 1790-1960 provides data on the population and economy of U.S. states and counties from 1790 to 1960. In addition to population and housing units, all decades have data on race, gender, and some measure of household size and composition. Beginning with 1840, some economic information such as education and occupation is included. Later decades include more variables such as ancestry, literacy and income data. All of the information can be view in an interactive data map.
